Player Outlook
Until Shorter receives meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to their rosters.

  • Bills' Justin Shorter: Candidate for depth role

    Shorter is in line to compete for depth slotting behind fellow wide receivers Khalil Shakir, Keon Coleman and Curtis Samuel in training camp, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. The Bills took Shorter in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, but he never saw game action after being placed on injured reserve ahead of the regular season on account of a hamstring injury. Though Shorter was designated to return from IR in December and resumed practicing with the team, he wasn't activated before his 21-day evaluation window closed. Now presumably past his hamstring injury, the 6-foot-4 wideout will vie with Chase Claypool, Mack Hollins, KJ Hamler, Andy Isabella and Quintez Cephus for a reserve role.

  • Bills' Justin Shorter: Won't play Sunday

    Shorter (hamstring) will not be activated from injured reserve before Saturday's game against the Chargers. Shorter has been practicing with the team since he was designated to return from injured reserve Dec. 13. However, the rookie receiver will remain sidelined for at least one more game before he makes his NFL debut. His next opportunity to suit up will be Week 17 against the Patriots.

  • Bills' Justin Shorter: Cleared for practice

    Shorter (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports. Shorter was a fifth-round selection in the 2023 NFL Draft and has yet to play this season after going on IR on Aug. 30. He'll now have a 21-day window to practice with the team before the Bills would need to add him to the 53-man roster, but the wideout would be eligible to play this weekend against the Cowboys if the coaching staff determines he's ready to contribute.

  • Bills' Justin Shorter: Lands on IR

    The Bills placed Shorter on injured reserve Wednesday with a hamstring injury, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Buffalo News reports. Shorter, a fifth-round pick out of Florida, made the Bills' initial 53-man roster after finishing the preseason with six catches for 66 yards and a touchdown while also contributing to special teams. However, after picking up the hamstring injury and going on IR, he'll be required to miss at least the first four games of the season. Once activated, Shorter will likely handle a depth role in the Bills' receiving corps.

  • Bills' Justin Shorter: Links up with Buffalo

    The Bills selected Shorter in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 150th overall. The Bills are adding some serious size to their pass-catching group with first-round TE Dalton Kincaid and now Shorter. A five-star recruit out of high school in 2018, Shorter never really latched on at Penn State and ultimately transferred to Florida. He was a two-year contributor for the Gators and amassed 1,127 combined receiving yards in his final two seasons. Though Shorter has flaws to his game, he's a good athlete (4.55 40) for his size (6-foot-4, 229) and compares physically to Gabe Davis. At best, Shorter will be a backup to Davis in that role in the Buffalo offense, and it's unlikely that he will develop into an every-down player.
